The Auburn Tigers have reportedly reached out to former Florida Gators football head coach Will Muschamp with an offer to be the team’s new defensive coordinator.
According to AuburnSports.com, Muschamp has been offered the defensive coordinator position with the Tigers:
“Sources say Muschamp also has received a lucrative offer from Texas A&M, which fired defensive coordinator Mark Snyder on Sunday. Auburn has assured Muschamp that it will compete with any offer made by a university program, though at least two NFL organizations have contacted him with provisional offers.
“Gus Malzahn doesn’t want to pressure Muschamp and is willing to give him time to plot his next move. Muschamp hasn’t given any of his suitors meaningful information regarding his personal, long-term plan.”
Muschamp was the Florida head coach from 2011 to 2014, winning the Gator Bowl in 2011 and winning the SEC East division title in 2012 before losing the Sugar Bowl to the Louisville Cardinals.
The Tigers defensive coordinator position opened up after Ellis Johnson was fired following the school’s 55-44 loss to Alabama in the 2014 Iron Bowl.
